The Golf Day raised £10,000 for the charity and was won by a team from the sponsor Premier Contractors, led by Richard Brocken. The winning team of four golfers each won a night at Longueville Manor for them and their partners. The team –Richard Brocken, Wally Baines, Mick Hanlon and Tommy Owen beat 17 other teams.  Second place went to Puritas Limited, led by Mike Feighan and third place went to Moore Stephens led by Brona Lambert.

Each team paid £550 to enter the competition.  As well as 18 holes of golf, competitors enjoyed refreshments throughout the day, a four-course lunch in the clubhouse, with prize giving, raffle and auction.

The event ended in good spirits with prizes and trophies being presented by Julie Gafoor CEO FNHC, for Winning Teams, Longest Drive and Nearest the Pin.
